I'm new to the site. I've been a John Wayne fan all my life but I'm no expert on him. I've always been curious about something and I'm hoping someone can shed some light on it for me. Why did Wayne always wear his gun belt so low on his hips? I've noticed some other western starts did the same. Was it just common at the time or were they imitating his style? Or was there some other reason? Thanks in advance for your help. Kevin.
